"In the adjacent Mojave tent the Sexy Magazines played a raucous blend of Stooges-inspired garage thrash mixed with the glam sensibilities of '70s-era Bowie."
"This is pirated rock n' roll right from NYC. From the streets of the lower east side comes The Sexy Magazines. Filling the airwaves with a sound that previously made CBGBs famous, the Sexy Magazines give us a rock n' roll mix with a modern garage rock flavor. Great tunes for fans of The Ramones, The Dead Boys, The Strokes, and The Fever."
"The Sexy Magazines were the first band out Saturday, beginning at 12:30 in 87 degree heat. Thank God they were in one of the tents. If you remember, I wasn't able to find any Sexy Magazine music, so I went in without knowing what they sounded like. I can now assert this confidently: Find a live show and go to it. And then buy their album and play it at your next party. A girl will ask to sleep with you. Promise. These guys take dance punk to new levels and should be loved."
"The Sexy Magazines are really awesome. Still mostly unheard of, you can still snatch these guys up and say you heard them first in whatever little indie clique you belong to. This offer won't last long though. Check them out before they blow up to Hot Hot Heat proportions."
"Saturday started with a bang and a whimper. New York dolls The Sexy Magazines rocked hard with provocative, Iggy-style punk, tight pants, and an electrified showmanship that belied their young age. (Forget the Hives –these college kids really are barely legal.)"
"...Little did I know that when the sexy magazines hit the stage these well mannered ladies lost most of their sober composure and went ape shit to the music. Now I was havin fun. The Sexy Magazines grabbed my attention right away with the edgy music and one fire energy that they threw out. For a genre of music that I really didn't like I was thourghly impressed. With a White Stripes / Rolling stones sound and feel I think that this band is gonna show up some where big. The whole set was powerhouse energy that didn't stop until the singer climbed the trellis a the side of the stage and did a Jim Morrison thing the ended up with him gyrating and grinding the floor. Great band. If you get a chance to see these guys don't pass it up."
"How about some music then? The music section is very good. It offers the web surfer and music lover a lot. This section previews and showcases loads of bands, and also allows fans to listen to sound files. It’s definitely a great place for bands to do some shameless self-promoting. You can reunite with bands you love like REM, to bands you may want to discover like The Sexy Magazines."

"...The Sexy Magazines, a vibrant and mildly flamboyant group that quickly won over the audience with their exuberance. The Sexy Magazines gave a taste of what bands like Jet and The Strokes could be like if they weren't so diluted by commercialism.
"Remember I said that The Sexy Magazines would pump some serious adrenaline and beer into your system? Well I wasn't lying, I definitely was hurting at 7:30 this morning when my alarm went off. So I did what any responsible student would do. Turned it off, rolled over, and slept until 1. Because I'm a genius.
"I'm not wanting to forget New York's Sexy Magazines, who played in the plaza outside the coliseum between sets. They blasted away in classic Dolls-glampunk glory, fun, good and loud, and it's been some time since I've seen a lead singer in mascara playing good music."
"First of all, I like the name Sexy Magazines (although I liked it better when I first looked at the CD cover and thought they were called the Sexy Machines). It makes me think of some gentile, smoking jacket-clad 1970s ladies man waxing poetic on his back issues of Oui as he sips scotch. And I like the fact that the CD didn’t come with a one-sheet telling me what I’m supposed to say about this release. So bravo on at least two counts!
